Poms lose Burgess for Four Na­tions

Rugby League Week - - News -

Depart­ing Souths winger Joe Burgess is in doubt for the Four Na­tions. My well-placed source at the Rab­bitohs tells me the 21-year-old — who’s re­turn­ing to Wi­gan in 2017 — needs a her­nia oper­a­tion, which will rule him out of next month’s tour­na­ment. Burgess, who switched from Syd­ney Roost­ers mid-sea­son, nailed down a spot at the Rab­bitohs and would have been in the frame for Wayne Ben­nett’s first in­ter­na­tional squad after mak­ing his Test de­but last year.
